Aisha radiAllahu Anha asked the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi

00:00:02--> 00:00:04

Wasallam, oh, Messenger of Allah,

00:00:04--> 00:00:07

is there any time where a person will

00:00:07--> 00:00:10

give no concern about anybody else? They will

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

be so preoccupied

00:00:11--> 00:00:14

with themselves. The Messenger of Allah said here.

00:00:14--> 00:00:14

Three places.

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

The Mizan,

00:00:21--> 00:00:24

when you are waiting for your actions to

00:00:24--> 00:00:24

be weighed,

00:00:25--> 00:00:27

when you are waiting for your book

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

and when you are at the bridge, the

00:00:30--> 00:00:30

sarah,

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

when your actions are weighed. The prophet sallallahu

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

alaihi wa sallam said

00:00:36--> 00:00:37

that your name

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

will be called in front of every individual.

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

If your scale is heavier,

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

then an announcement will be made that flyib

00:00:46--> 00:00:46

nefla,

00:00:47--> 00:00:50

his scales were heavy and he's going to

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

Jannah. And if your scales are light then

00:00:53--> 00:00:56

announcement would be made that flaib Nefla, his

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

scales were light, so he's destined to Jahannam.

00:01:00--> 00:01:03

The salaf would say something really interesting about

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

the scales. They would say,

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

destroyed is that person

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

who allowed

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

his wands to be more heavier than his

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

tens.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

What they meant by that is when a

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

person does a good action,

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

he gets tenfold

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

for that one good action and possibly many

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

more. When a person does an evil action,

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

only one evil action is written down.

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

Destroyed is he who allowed his ones to

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

be heavier than his tens. That is what

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

the salaf would say. Umar would

00:01:36--> 00:01:36

say,

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

Take account of yourself

00:01:43--> 00:01:43

before

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

account will be taken of you.

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

Weigh your actions.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

See the Ikhlas.

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

See the sincerity.

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

See how close they are bringing each other

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala before they are weighed on

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

the Day of Judgment.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

It is better

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

and lighter for you that you take your

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

account today rather than your account is taken

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

tomorrow. When Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, has weighed

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

the actions of individuals,

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

then there will be 3 individuals.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

the fire of Jahannam will be lit with

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

these 3 individuals.

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

1,

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

a scholar.

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

2nd, a shahid.

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

And the 3rd person who speak to the

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

path of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. Allah Subhanahu

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

Wa Ta'ala will call the scholar and he

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

will say to him, what did you do

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

with the elym that I gave you? He

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

will say, oh Allah,

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

I disseminated

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

your knowledge,

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

I taught in other people, I called people

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

towards you. Allah would say no, you called

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

it so people would say what a great

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

scholar. They will praise you. You attained and

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

received what you wanted in the duniya.

00:03:01--> 00:03:03

Now Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will tell the

00:03:03--> 00:03:05

angels and he will be dragged into the

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

fire of Jahannam. Then the shahid will be

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

called

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

and Allah Subhanahu Ta'ala will say, what did

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

you do with the life I gave you?

00:03:13--> 00:03:13

Inshallah,

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

I gave the ultimate sacrifice.

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

I was bartered.

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

I died for your sake.

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

Allah would say no that's not why you

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

done it. You done it so people would

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

say, what a brave individual.

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

You got your recognition in the duniya and

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

he will be dragged into the fire of

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

Jahannam.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

And the 3rd person would be a wealthy

00:03:33--> 00:03:33

individual

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

who built Masajid,

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

who gave sadaqa.

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

And Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will say to

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

him, what did you do with the wealth

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

I gave you? So Allah spent it in

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

your path.

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

Allah will say no.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

You did it for recognition. So people say

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

what a generous individual this person is, And

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

you got your recognition in the dunya and

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

then this person will be dragged into the

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

fire of Jahanaba. Imagine this narration.

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

Scholar. What does a scholar speak?

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

A scholar says

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

He says the most purest things, the words

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

of Allah and the words of Rasool. But

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

if there is not sincerity behind that, then

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

said, he will be dragged into the fire

00:04:16--> 00:04:16

of Jahannam.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

The Shaheed,

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

the ultimate sacrifice

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

to give your life

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

for Allah's sake. But if there is not

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

a clause behind it, if you are not

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

doing it for the sake of Allah Subhanahu

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

Wa Ta'ala,

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

that ultimate sacrifice

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

will result in your own destruction.

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

And then the third person, a man who

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

spent in the path of Allah, the vast

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

majority of people who lose their way towards

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

is because of the duniya, is because of

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

the attachment to materialistic

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

prosperity and materialistic good. This person

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

gave that,

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

but he gave it without a class and

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

this person will be dragged into the fire

00:04:59--> 00:05:02

of Jahannam. The prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said,

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

the fire of Jahannam

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

individuals.

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

individuals.
